This weekend has been cold,rainy & windy in New England. It has not stopped raining since Saturday morning as I write this at 9:30am on Monday. On Saturday I went to an open house at the Cordon Bleu Cooking School in Boston. My oldest daughter Sabrina has been accepted there & if the financing goes through she will start on April 6. Fingers are crossed.
On a stitching front the weather made it a great stitching weekend. I got a good start on Quaker Halloween. I must say I like my color better than the recommended colors. To me purple is not a Halloween color. I am using Crescent Colors Belle Soie Lasagne silk.Love how it stitches. The fabric is 25 count mushroom lugana. This is my first Quaker & I love it. It will get 2 weeks & then I will stitch on The Astronomer for 2 weeks. This time the rotation seems to be working for me. I just finished 2 weeks on Cottage Garden Rug but forgot to take pictures so will post those another time.
